iCab comes to mind ( It'll cost you $10 if you want to get rid 
of the occasional nag screen but otherwise it may be close to what you 
want. I do not know how well it works with recent sites (I actually 
should try it again as I do have a paid-for license for it). I used to 
really like it until I switched to Firefox as I ran into issues with 
iCab and certain websites. iCab uses Webkit afaik.

I assume you know about Tenfourfox, Arctic Fox etc.

Even if you don’t, hey, we’re getting a nice kickback from a third party for including it, so WE’LL love it.”
